  Chips, the baby bobcat that was rescued Aug. 25 from an area devastated by Chips Fire, has become a countrywide celebrity thanks to her warm and inspiring journey through the charred remains of her home.

  When she was rescued, the kit’s eyes were full of ash and smoke, and she had second-degree burns on her paws. Now, at 5 months old, she is living the high life in Placerville along with two other bobcats her own age.

  Chips spent the last few months recovering at the Lake Tahoe Wildlife Care center, where she received specialized treatment to heal her infected eyes and blistered paws.
